Overview

A versatile defender who can guard 1-4, Jackson has an NBA body with great length and good strength. If he can become a knock down three point shooter he'll have a long, solid NBA career.

Strengths
Has awesome length for size, which gives him defensive versatility and the ability to make plays in the lane. He's an above average rebounder and interior defender for a small forward and he can also defend the three point line, using his great length to bother the shooter.

Has natural power and a solid frame. Has all the traits to be a solid 3&D player in the NBA.

Weaknesses
Isn't a great ball handler and is not a polished offensive player.

Lacks consistency from mid range and from three point range.

Doesn't have great feel for the game and is still figuring out how to put all of his great physical abilities together on the basketball court.

Comparisons
Dorian Finney-Smith or a poor man's Paul Milsap.

Projection: late first to early second round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft
